Must-See Coachella Undercard: Miami Horror — delivering a delicious dose of nu-disco experimentalism

Out of all the countless attempts by electro-pop artists to tap into the bygone and now mythical energy of 1970s and 80s dance floors, Miami Horror has become a stand out troupe that appears innately stuck in the past. Led by producer Benjamin Plant, the quartet displays an almost ungodly, intimate understanding of decade-old trends […]

Must-See Coachella Undercard: DMA’s – Aussies with a Britpop punch

If you’ve been holding your breath for Oasis to make a return since breaking up almost a decade ago, you can exhale. No, the Gallagher brothers haven’t patched things up and announced they’re back together, but there’s another band ready to continue the Britpop legacy that Oasis helped build. The intriguing thing is these guys […]

Must-See Coachella Undercard: Låpsley — the new face of power pop ballads

There are really only two things you need to know about Coachella lineup honoree Låpsley; one, her powerful pop ballads are one of the most exciting things that have happened this year so far, and two, she enjoys yachting. The British singer/songwriter spent much of 2015 releasing a number of tracks, the first four of […]

Must-See Coachella Undercard: Girlpool — raw, punk-rock lyricisms meets bare folk melodies

Looking at Coachella’s [insert virtually any year] lineup can be a lot like staring into the sun. Sure, we can all agree it’s pretty brilliant for various reasons, but sometimes that many names on a bill can be blinding as you attempt to read through all the small print. And oftentimes, it’s the tiny names at […]

Must-See Coachella Undercard: HÆLOS — dark, sexy electro pop that will give you release

While marveling at this year’s Coachella lineup, you may have noticed an influx of undercard acts; bands that you’ve never even heard of.

Coachella 2016: finally moving away from being a boys’ club?

Feature written by Mark E. Ortega According to an April 2013 Buzzfeed article, Coachella hadn’t seen a ratio of male-fronted acts to female-fronted ones below 80% since 2008.

Florence + The Machine gives transcendent Coachella performance

Damn it is good to see Florence + The Machine on the main stage at Coachella. Another of the seemingly endless Coachella legacy performers, Florence Welch definitely outshined the evening headliner Drake, and was probably one of the two or three best performances of the entire weekend. Welch’s energy was sky high. She ran across […]

Drake doesn’t live up to Coachella-ending bill (neither does Madonna)

Photo courtesy of Coachella Let me preface this review of his Sunday main stage closing Coachella set by saying I’m not the biggest Drake fan. That being said, I had high expectations headed into it, and they weren’t quite met by the mega star rapper’s performance. With all the features on his tracks over the […]

Radiohead’s Philip Selway brings life to stellar Coachella set

One thinks he would have been better attended had the Coachella schedule simply read “Drummer for Radiohead,” but despite playing to a rather sparse crowd at the Gobi tent on Sunday, Philip Selway brought to life a stellar set. You could have counted up all the people in the room by the time he completed […]
